Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Dick Durbin, D-Ill., have asked to talk with FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg about what the FDA is doing to ensure the safety of popular energy drinks and energy shots. "Over the past year, there has been alarming evidence that energy drinks pose a potential threat to the public's health," the senators wrote. "We request a meeting with you on the steps FDA is taking regarding highly caffeinated energy drinks and to ensure they are safe for their intended use and in combination with other energy drink ingredients."
